Thirty-six Educators across the country will be recognised for their excellence in G8 Education’s annual Standout Educator Awards as part of the provider’s Early Childhood Educators’ Day celebrations.
Families and colleagues nominated Educators for their work across six categories – Community Engagement, Family Engagement, Safety, Sustainability, Mentoring and Outstanding Practice.
“Our team of Educators and Teachers are our greatest asset, and it will be wonderful to have the opportunity to celebrate them and their incredible contribution to our communities as part of Early Childhood Educators Day,” said Gary Carroll, G8 Education CEO.
“I look forward to congratulating our 36 winners and thanking all our Educators and Teachers for their ongoing dedication and passion in delivering the very best outcomes for children and delivering our purpose, creating the foundations for learning for life.”
More than 6,500 nominations were received across the six categories, with comments from colleagues and families including praise for Educators championing children as capable learners, their exceptional support, passion, inspiration and their development of quality connections.
“My team and I had the pleasure of reviewing the shortlist of nominations and it was wonderful to read about the impact our educators and teachers are having on children, families and colleagues,” said G8 Education’s Head of Early Learning and Education, Ali Evans.
“We talk about this profession as having a profound societal impact, in how education shapes life-long learning. This is well and truly captured reading the personal stories of these nominations.
“A career in early childhood is truly something worth celebrating. It is a chance to make a positive impact in a child’s life, and your own.”
G8 Education hopes all Educators and Teachers across the country enjoy a very happy Early Childhood Educators’ Day!
